In a post on the Berkeley Township PD’s Facebook page, Berkeley police Chief Karin DiMichele said Wray “excelled” in her position and quickly rose the ranks to sergeant in 2015.

"Please keep Sergeant Wray's family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn their loss," DiMichele said in the post. "Please also keep the officers and civilian staff at Berkeley Township in your prayers as they have lost a great officer, a great leader, great public servant and a great friend."

Her family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for her two children, ages 2 and 4.

Funeral arrangements for Wray have not been announced at this time.


On behalf of Police Chief Karin DiMichele the Berkeley Township Police Department sadly announces the death of Sergeant...
